Lawn and Garden Battery by Autocraft.

These small engine lawn and garden batteries by Autocraft are a cost effective solution to your aging lawn tractor battery. These batteries are almost maintenance free. 300 cold cranking amps should make starting quicker and put less a strain on your starter. These batteries are fully charged and ready to be installed right from the store. A fresh battery will put less a strain on your entire electrical system. They are designed to prevent internal shorts from all the harsh vibrations and rough conditions presented by lawn and garden equipment.
You may want to purchase a small packet of battery terminal protector for use when you install your new battery.
I have also used these batteries in simple low amp hour appliances as a backup or replacement.

Generic Tractor Battery

The generic tractor battery was priced within range and because of the website discount was 15% percent cheaper then buying from competitors.

    Comments about Autocraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA:

    I bought this w/o my husband's approval. I removed the old one out of the mower and installed this one with NO problems. My mower now gets more gas hours than when I was having to jump start the old battery. I am just sorry that I waited a whole year to purchase a new battery!! And I proved to my husband that I can do a little bit with engines on my own. He kept telling me he needed to check the mower because it might not be the battery but something else that made me have to jump start it. Especially after it quit jump starting. Then he said it was the battery charger that was bad. I had half the yard cleared of leaves in an hour and half after purchase and install. And we have a lot of yard to clear!!!

        Battery is perfect fit. Purchased the same battery years ago and it has lasted longer than any others. Fantastic value and, if you are installing the battery on a lawn mower, it is very simple. I would recommend this product again and again!!!

        Use online coupon and saved 30% and battery was picked up in local store same day. Battery is a lot better then last one from another auto parts store. The store employees in my local store are very helpful and very easy to talk with. Battery starts all the time every time. Seems well made as far as I can tell.

                  It's too soon to accurately evaluate a battery because it has just been installed. All that can be said at this point is that it currently is fulfilling its intended function. But I would highly recommend the online order/store pickup process.

                      Product has a 3 month warranty and my battery only lasted 5 months. Will no longer hold a charge! Maintained with charger every 3-4 weeks. Still did not last. I would not recommend this to anybody. Called the store was told they cant do anything about it, it's out of the 3 month warranty. Going to look elsewhere for my next u1-3 battery.

                          I have 2 cub cadet tractors, and I maintain them very good. I check the oil, every time I start it up, and I change the differential oil every 2 seasons. Advance Auto has all the battery and oil. I can use Cub Cadet merchandise, but I will pay a premium price. So I check Advance Auto for coupons, which comes right off the top
                          of my purchases, and I am very happy about saving the few dollars. I am on a fixed income, and welcome the savings.
                          So the next time my battery needs to be changed, I will gladly come back to Advance...

                              Worked great in my 22 hp Sears lawn tractor. Spins the starter faster than the original battery. So far has held a full charge after sitting 3 weeks between uses.

                                  Hi Frankie, To ensure that you are replacing your battery with one that is exactly the same as what is coming out of your Toro Zero turn time cutter, please provide the Part No. off the battery and we can cross reference your battery to a compatible one.

                                I read where the U1"R" means the + terminal is on the right side of the battery, is that looking at the top of the battery with the terminals away from you or looking at the top of the battery with the terminals closest to you? The photos on your website for both part numbers show the + terminal in the same place.

                                  I'm happy to help, Tim! You are correct, a battery with a group size of U1R will have the + (positive) terminal on the right. Group size U1 will have the + (positive) terminal on the left. The terminal location is determined by looking at the battery with the posts closer to you. I have requested that we have our images updated to better reflect the battery terminal locations. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

                                  I'm glad to assist, Rick! This Autocraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Battery (Part No. U1-3) will replace your John Deere MowPro (Part No. GY20982). Generally, all U1 size batteries will fit most lawn & garden equipment that require a lead-acid type battery. You will want to make sure that the cranking amps will meet your requirements and that you do not have a reverse post battery. Those batteries will include an R in the part number.

                                  I'm happy to help, Craig! When you are charging a lawn & garden battery it is recommended to charge at the 2 amp rate.

                                  I'm happy to help, Mary! According to the John Deere operator's manual for the lawn tractor the battery BCI group size is U1. This battery is listed as a U1 type battery. To ensure that you are replacing your battery with one that is exactly the same as what is coming out of your lawn tractor, please provide the Part No. off the battery and we can cross reference your battery to a compatible one.
